Over 200 attended Chesapeake Conference's annual convention for children's and youth ministries leaders from Sept. 8-10.
Chesapeake Conference schools welcomed students back for the 2023-24 school year on Aug. 14 and 15.
Chesapeake Conference schools welcomed back students this week for the start of the 2023-24 school year, and conference officials say enrollment is up.
The conference education department reported an increase in student enrollment for this year and anticipated that total conference school enrollment will top 1,200 students for the first time in years.
“This is an exciting week in our Chesapeake schools,” said Janesta Walker, superintendent of schools. “Seeing our students filling the halls and classrooms again after the summer break is always exhilarating.”
Chesapeake Conference operates 10 schools in Maryland, Delaware, and West Virginia. Conference officers and department directors were present at each school during first-day activities to welcome students, distribute gifts, and pray for students and staff.
“Our number one goal in every school is to disciple our students for Jesus,” Walker said. “We hope this year will mark tremendous academic and spiritual growth for every student. We have an amazing team of dedicated teachers who are committed to helping each student reach his or her full potential. I believe this is going to be an incredible school year filled with God’s blessings.”
